Philip Klinkner, the James S. Sherman Professor of Government, was quoted first by Utica’s Observer-Dispatch (OD) and then by the National Review Online (NRO), referencing his OD quotes. The OD article titled “Nearly $1M spent on Hanna's behalf vs. Tenney” appearing on June 13 and the NRO article titled “Is Claudia Tenney the Next David Brat?” and appearing on June 20 compared U.S. Representative Richard Hanna’s campaign for re-election to the New York’s 22nd district against Claudia Tenney to that of Eric Cantor’s campaign against David Brat.

Klinkner was quoted by the OD and subsequently the NRO that “’the Cantor results have to worry the Hanna folks.’ He noted that ‘they wouldn’t be spending [the money on ads] unless they really thought they had a challenge.’”

The $400 million campaign marked the most ambitious fundraising initiative in the College's history.
